I recently switched from bludomain hosting to hostgator and after the switch my site reverted back to an old version (and parts of the site are missing) I can login to wp-admin but my site is not visible and I cannot figure out what's wrong. Please help!
Most likely php error in your theme or a plugin.
- Did you check your error logs?
- Do you have any plugin installed?
- Did you try the default TwentyFourteen theme instead ?
I've tried the 2014 theme and I have no idea, it's kind of beyond my scope here.
ok, and did your web show up when using the 2014 theme instead?
www.pixelpixiephotography.com SHOULD be where the site is you can check it and this http://pixelpixiephotography.com/blog/ I had switched this over to be not just a blog but to the root and it worked fine. However then, after BluDomain quit my hosting everything went to crap.
No it did not show up.
aha, you got some php errors.
It looks like your WordPress is installed under the /blog directory.
You should try to go to
and change the address urls given there to match your setup.
i.e. these settings:
<blockquote><strong>WordPress Address (URL)</strong>
Enter the full URL of the directory containing your WordPress core application files (e.g., wp-config.php, wp-admin, wp-content, and wp-includes). For example, if you installed WordPress into a directory called "blog", then the WordPress address would be http://example.net/blog (where example.net is your domain). If you installed WordPress into your web root, this address will be the root URL http://example.net. WordPress will trim a slash (/) from the end. If you defined the WP_SITEURL constant in your wp-config.php file, that value will appear in this field and you will not be able to make changes to it from the WordPress administration screen.
<blockquote><strong>Site Address (URL)</strong>
Enter the address you want people to type in their browser to reach your WordPress site. This is the directory where WordPress's main index.php file is installed. The Site address (URL) is identical to the WordPress address (URL) (above) unless you are giving WordPress its own directory. WordPress will trim a slash (/) from the end. If you defined the WP_HOME constant in your wp-config.php file, that value will appear in this field and you will not be able to make changes to it from the WordPress administration screen.</blockquote>
So try to set
<em>WordPress Address (URL)</em>
in your setup, if I understand you correctly.
as the <em>Site Address (URL)</em> settings.
ps: this might be helpful:

Change theme to twenty ten/eleven/fourteen and try?
Also go to the updates page and reinstall wordpress if that doesn't work.
Check error log if that doesn't work either.
You can check your error log from your CPanel settings.
How do I check the error log?
Vidyut Kale comments:
Try renaming your plugin folder and disabling any caching you may have installed.

I am able to see your site now. In case you still can't, you should probably empty your browser cache or use a different browser (if you don't know how to do that.

change the meta value of siteurl and home with

- click database
- click table prefix_options
- search meta_key home, change meta_value from http://pixelpixiephotography.com/blog with http://pixelpixiephotography.com
- search meta_key siteurl, change meta_value from http://pixelpixiephotography.com/blog with http://pixelpixiephotography.com
or put this code in wp-config.php
define('WP_HOME', 'http://pixelpixiephotography.com' );
define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://pixelpixiephotography.com' );
